In the remaining matches, Man City are strong favourites to progress past Schalke while Liverpool’s tie against Bayern Munich hangs on a knife edge.

Can two English teams play each other in the Champions League quarter-final?

Yes. The quarter-final is the first stage in which country protection is removed.

In the group stage and second round no two teams from the same country can face each other.

But now Man United, Man City, Liverpool and Spurs could all face off.

This last happened as recently as last season when Liverpool beat Man City in an epic.
